1. Get your camping chair ready, Altuzarra for Target will be greatness (and worth sleeping outside the store for I’m sure)
2. One of my favorite Norwegian bloggers started up their blog again, check it out here.
3. What better way to spend a Sunday morning than scrolling through ssense.com’s amazing handbag sale. How I wish I could afford it all!
4. Need some tips on upping your instagram game? Vogue posted some tips to get an editor approved I.G profile.
5. I love these Paris streetstyle photos posted by Studded Hearts
Langford Market skirt, Tory Burch flats (these are on sale!) Kardashian Kollection cat eye sunglasses, Prada Handbag, Michael Kors watch and a Gina tricot top
I picked out this lovely flower printed pencil skirt at my last visit to Langford Market and I love both the colors and the print. I chose to style it with a classic striped top and add some extra color by pairing it with a red pair of flats. In my last post I mentioned work appropriate looks and I think this skirt can be styled several different ways to make it cute and professional for work or a summer internship. You can for example pair it with a classic black tank and a tailored blazer, this way you can skip the the blazer and add a pair of heels for an easy day-to-night transition. You can also pair it like I did here with a classic striped top or a button down white blouse for a simply yet different summer work look. Hope you have had a great week so far!

I have always wanted the American college experience, and now that I am here I have tons of tips and tricks I wish I knew before starting the process of attending college in the U.S. There are several steps in deciding to attend college in the States. Questions about cost, funding and location can be overwhelming and hard to answer. I decided to write a series of posts about my own experience, recommendations and tips to make the transition as easy as possible. The first thing to think about is where to move, the U.S is a big and diverse country – there is a place for every taste!
I cannot speak for others, but my initial thought on location was the obvious choice for any Norwegian of either NYC or Los Angeles. I had been to NYC a couple of times and loved the vibe there, and although I had never been to LA it’s image of endless beach, palm trees and summer all year was imprinted in my mind. As I came a little further along in the process, It became clear what type of institution I wanted. A big school, great academics, student friendly city, big city, and most importantly I wanted the typical American college experience, think football games, sororities/fraternities and tailgating. When I came to the realization that most images of American college life I had been exposed to before were not really from schools in NYC or LA, but rather big southern schools like University of Florida, UT (university of Texas), University of Georgia or The University of Alabama I started expanding my search for a college in other locations as well. To me, school spirit and sense of community was very important in researching different colleges.
Initially the best tip on deciding where to go is asking yourself the question of which type of college do you want to attend? A small private one? A big public university? Should it be in a large city like NYC, Chicago or Los Angeles? What about climate, hot or cold? It might seem a bit silly, but it is a very effective way of narrowing down your selection of colleges. Great resources for college ranking, SAT/ACT requirements and areas of study can be found at College Board and Peterson’s. For my Norwegian readers, also check out ANSA’s website for scholarship and college information. Stay tuned for more posts on moving to the States!

I don’t know what it is, but there is something about greek columns. It might be because they are so scarce where I am from, or just their way of transforming the simplest of looks with its royal backdrop, whatever it is I love the look. It seems as the more I get to know Austin, the more little gems like this location I find, UT truly has a beautiful campus.
I hope you guys like my all white (with a few hints of black) look, I wanted something that felt summery, but looked simple. A good tip if you want to avoid the flowery look for spring and summer, go with a textured white dress instead.
